  • It would be nice to flash the other end of an incoming call to an alternative line and then cause it to call a number that would audibly report the the phone number of the alternative line.

    This might make it possible to discover what the real phone number of an inbound call that was using a fake caller ID.

    If somehow that trick worked it would be possible to track down and catch perps who make all those fake calls.
